    Can i see some jumbo setups posted? I looked through the big thread about all different packs, but want to specificially see jumbo bags. So i can get a feel for how to set mine up. I have a malaga, but i like the Jumbo more and am trying to sell the malaga. So i'd like to see some pics of the fatboy jumbo's setup. I'll take some pics once i transfer all my stuff over.

    I recently did a video on my new jumbo. It is specific to using it in photography/video loadout, but it does give you a rough idea as to capacity.

    [video=youtube;zZjaNRmTYY0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZjaNRmTYY0[/video]

    I can fit:

    Full size DSLR (padded)
    Extra 50mm prime lens (room for one more of similar size)
    Various cards, cheat sheats, grey/color cards
    Eyeglass case with lavalier microphone and cables
    Assorted extra batteries and memory cards
    HD Camcorder
    Choice of flash or water bottle
    Minimalist edc keychain set (flashlights, widgy bars, whatever)
    Room for a few more small things without deforming the shape of the bag.

    I'm quite happy with mine.

    I was like... "What's he going to pull out next, this is crazy!" At multiple points.

    Here's my S-type, from when I had it. It was one of the older models with PALS on the top pocket. I still think it is the best man-purse design out there and I wish I hadn't sold it to be honest;

    what magnifier? thread drift, sorry to OP

    yellowhammer / Ian
    Nice kit there.
    What brand, model, etc. is the jeweler's (bug-inspector?) loupe?
    In loupes and magnifiers, I've only seen multiple lenses hinged together &
    stacked on top of one another, not at opposite ends of device.
    What power, etc. Can you give us a link?
    Also just to left of ruler, in black fold-out case --- mini-stapler or multi-tool or ???
    thanks

    Al, the hand lens is a Ruper Doublet x8/x15. Mine is 23 years old now which depresses me a bit, but they are still in production now. It's a very good lens for looking at bugs and things, and for starting fires if you get a bit bored ;) This link is just to a place that I know stocks them, having dealt with Alan before I've no doubt they are available cheaper elsewhere; http://www.alanaecology.com/acatalog/Ruper_Doublet_Hand_Lens_x8_x15.html The black case holds an old-school Leatherman Wave bit adapter, still my favourite bit driver. That's only about 10 years old :lol: http://www.multitool.org/leatherman-tool-group/accessories/leatherman-universal-tool-adapter.html

    Thanks, yellowhammer.

    Until you said the gadget was a Leatherman U. Tool Adapter,
    I was feeling quite smug about having identified it as a mini-stapler outfit.
    Oh, well.
    Maybe I should go back to the pen and paper threads and
    stay in office supplies.

    I finally received the Khaki-Foliage Jumbo and accessories I ordered over a month ago.


    I can't get over the fantastic build quality, it is truly amazing and the Jumbo is now proudly my new EDC bag.

    I also received a Khaki Barnacle and a Khaki 4.5" phone holster which are both attached to the Molle Webbing at the ends of the strap. I also got a Khaki Volta Battery pouch (which for some reason looks between a khaki colour and olive drab green, but its nice I quite like the colour), and also an EDC organiser. Will post some pics at a later time.

    Easygoing:

    Nice video- glad it could work out for you. You bought this the day before the review? I'd like to see your opinion of the bag six months from now. I tried to use the Jumbo for several purposes(one of them being a camera bag) and it never worked out. I wasn't going to stick a bag within the bag (as you did) because the whole setup gets real heavy, real fast. That left everything unpadded- not good. Out of all of my lenses, only my 50/1.8 would fit into the bag. Flash (SB600) could fit into the water bottle pocket. Batteries and extra memory can fit into front pocket.

    Also, I'm not sure I would have used the term "full-sized DSLR," as the D200 is a crop camera, and you don't have a grip on it.

    I've been carrying this bag for about 3 or 4 yrs now. Usually just random stuff that I carry to and from work...A Maxpedition Pocket Organizer with some basics...pens, Leatherman, Sharpie, flashlight, some small screwdrivers. I usually have spare batteries, my Galaxy Tab and cables.
